-How many Dylan concerts have you been to? (And how many were outdoors?)
-Do you own any cool bootleg stuff?

- "Tangled Up In Blue" I love the music and the imagery.
- 1/1- I'd love to see more, but no one lese except my brother is really a fan so it's hard to get out to see him.
- No...I'd love to though. Did you hear of the tape they just found? It's of him and a friend jammin in the garage when they were pretty young. They're valueing the tape at $100K.
-Hmmm...this a toughie. I like a lot of older Country like Johnny Cash.

hmmmm....all-time fave song:(too many to choose but for now...)
Just Like a Woman
i've only seen him once, he opened for the Dead in 1998 at Giants Stadium, not his best. Otherwise he doesnt come 'round these parts much.
my 2 fave bootlegs..and theyre not even bootlegs cuz you can get them in stores:
Bob Dylan Live 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue
Bob Dylan Live, 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall Concert"
and i really dont listen to much folk. but i also don't really consider Bobby D to be a folkie (IMO)
great thread though! i'm curious what others will chime in with....
--Favorite Dylan songs: Shelter from the Storm, Is Your Love in Vain?, Forever Young
--Concerts: Just one. The concert was outdoors (at Wolftrap outside of DC). Ani DiFranco opened. Very cool.
--No cool bootleg stuff for me.
--Other folksy folk and/or great lyricists I love (tossing in everything from legends to local acts): John Lennon, Cat Stevens, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Neil Young, Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco, Dar Williams, Lucy Kaplansky, Matt the Electrician, Eliza Gilkyson, Patty Griffin, Okkervil River

--Favorite Dylan songs: Girl from the North Country, Boots of Spanish Letter
--Concerts: four or five-- one was a joint appearance (no pun intended) with Willie Nelson, whom I also adore.
--Bootlegs--several, but they are all my DH's, who is a HUGE Dylan fan. Honestly, we have so much Dylan, I couldn't even begin to name them! The man is PROLIFIC!!!! We listen to the basement tapes A LOT.
His new album is wonderful. In fact, his last 3 have been amazing.

Favorite song: Lay Lady Lay (just because his voice sounds so weird!), I can never remember the name but the song with Abraham and God speaking to each other. It's a big joke in my family. Things Have Changed. Ack, there's too many.
Concerts: Only one, last year at the Orpheum in Boston (Amos Lee and Merle Haggard opened). My whole family took my dad for his birthday (he's a DIEHARD Dylan fan). My parents saw him years ago at the Finger Lakes Performing Arts Center which is an outdoor ampitheatre. It ended up raining but they were set because they brought their tent, binoculars and Bean boots. ;)
Bootlegs: Nothing but the published Bootleg series
Other artists: Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, PP&M, Cat Stevens, Leonard Cohen, Cowboy Junkies, Indigo Girls, Ani, Amos Lee, Bonnie Raitt, LOTS of others.
msnicolea: isn't it Boots of Spanish Leather
I've managed to get DH into Dylan which is a big deal since he grew up on rap/hip hop and had never hear Dylan before.

You must not have heard the famous sequel, "Spanish Letter" ;)

I was driving home yesterday listening to Mike Ness' version of "Don't Think Twice". It's my favorite version of a Dylan cover. I think I listened to it 3 times in a row. :rolleyes: What are your favorite covers (barring the obvious choices like Jimmy Hendrix's "All Along the Watchtower" and Eric Clapton's "Knocking on Heaven's Door")? I love hearing different interpretations of his songs.

liznkeith I like the Indigo Girls cover of Tangled up in Blue.
speaking of covers, don't you find it frustrating that people think the covers that have been done are actually that artist's original song? I know someone who swore that AATWT was a Hendrix original. Argh! Same thing happens with Leonard Cohen and his song Hallelujah. :rolleyes:
